3410 North Lake Shore Drive Phase II

The extensive facade restoration at 3410 North Lake Shore, which had taken place over two construction seasons, is complete. Alexander & Associates is pleased to have been involved in the restoration of the facade of this modernist landmark, originally designed by J. Marion Gutnayer in association with L.R. Solomon & Associates in 1950-51.

 

The restoration included restoring the original design intent of the facade, returning to the colored brick facade which was painted over during condominium conversion in the mid-1990's. This was done with judicious application of paint as stripping the existing masonry would have been cost-prohibitive and difficult, in addition to finding replacement brick. 

 

The contractor was Fieldstone Building Services Inc. of Burr Ridge.
